Cinco Meses en la Argentina

Desde el Punto de Vista de Una Mujer

Translation of Katherine Dreier’s "Five Months in the Argentine: From a Woman’s Point of View 1918 to 1919."

In the prologue, Mizraje provides a socio-historical context of the period in which this American philanthropist arrived in Buenos Aires.

In the Introduction, Tompkins offers a biographical account that underscores this amateur painter’s phenomenal contribution to the recognition of modern art.

Finally, in the “Criteria of the Translation,” Tompkins dwells on Dreier’s interpretations and misinterpretations on issues such as the suffragist movement, the worker’s struggles, and Argentine idiosyncrasies.
